administration's risk base driven approach to aviation security and specifically the use of advanced imaging technology. as a chief technology officer, i will focus on the aspects and lee will discuss the human aspect. before going into detail, the technology is vital to the nation's ability to keep travelers safe in the 9/11 world. we face a determined enemy bent on our way of life. they arrested a man planning an attack on the dc subway system and a young saw disrespectful frankly -- saudi man was arrested. whether it was a failed attack in 2009, the plot in october, or the intelligence plots we see every day, al-qaeda and intelligence groups continue to target our system. we have to detect today's threat, not yesterday's. we have a able system that works in several measures. one aspect of the check point is what we're hear to discuss today. mr. chairman, well hidden devices are among the gravest threat to security. while there's no sell veer bullet, this gives us the best opportunity to detect the threats. we piloted the technology in early 2007 knowing of these threats. following analys

>>> good morning, everybody, and thanks for joining us, i'm betty nguyen. throughout the economic recovery, the missing ingredient has been jobs. but, that could change this morning with the release of the government's february jobs report. susan mcginnis is in washington with more. good morning, susan. what are you expecting from this report? >> good morning, betty. well, yeah, analysts are expecting good news from the job front later this morning. but the big question is, how good? because, as we know, they've been wrong before. the number of americans filing for unemployment benefits dropped last week to the lowest level in nearly three years. that, combined with a private sector survey showing a pickup in hiring, has economists optimistic about today's report. most expect it to show the economy added close to 200,000 jobs last month. still, the unemployment rate is projected to edge up a bit to 9.1%. >> it should be the kind of report that says finally we've gone from jobless recovery to a recovery that is finally creating at least enough jobs to soak up some of the unemployed. >> repo

fighting between libya and rebel forces over the past three or four days. u.s. officials have not had this confirmed and are being very cautious about the circumstances surrounding this. but the report is that a french pilot radioed in and said he had shot down a libyan warplane, not clear that that plane was involved in any sort of offensive military operations at the time. >> thanks for that information this morning. >> you bet. >>> how will this all end? france's foreign minister insists it could go on for weeks, although not months. the l.a. times reports that the rebels are starting to use gadhafi type tactics. richard engle is there with this incredible report. >> reporter: american and european air strikes stopped a massacre in benghazi but on the front lines the rebels are mostly on their own. here there are no trenches or sandbags, just men, poorly armed, who want to fight. the rebel frontline is about five miles outside of the town and smoke can be seen rising. the rebels watch with binoculars but can't advanced. outgunned, rebels say they are killed whenever they approach g

? >> reporter: no. it's not what the u.s. was hoping he'd say. it's not what the syrian people were hoping he'd say, or the rest of the middle east that was looking toward the speech as really a significant benchmark to which direction syria would go. carol, this was a defiance speech. no major concessions and the message here was loud and clear. this is about survival of the regime of bashar al assad and clear, too, he wanted to stay and fight the emergency law that everyone fought. maybe he is actually going to lift it. did not happen. so that means the regime is able to use a very serious and dangerous tool where they can just detain people at their own whims and keep people in check that way. i spoke to one analyst who said if you're anyone in damascus today and you heard that speech you would probably think twice before getting out on the streets to demonstrate because the security services have a brutal history of cracking down really hard. the syrians know the reality on the ground. and it can be dire consequences. >> it sounds so much like what happened in egypt. it's eerie. how worri
that will include a discussion of when the u.s. will hand over its lead role. french military officials say french pilot fired a missile at a libyan plane that just landed at a base in the coastal city of misrata. french jets, including some from the aircraft carrier charles de gaulle, seen here off libya, struck a libyan base 150 miles south of the coast. attacks in tripoli targeted a libyan military base depot. libyan state tv broadcast these images of the damage. and the african-american union has invited representatives from gadhafi's government and opposition representatives to talk in ethiopia's capital tomorrow. so far new york response from either side in libya. >>> we begin coverage with nbc news pentagon correspondent, jim miklaszewski. mik, what can you tell us about the incident involving that french fighter jet? >> reporter: u.s. military officials can't tell us very much. earlier today, members of that coalition on the american side said they had no evidence that there was a plane in the air or of any poe sentential shoot-dow. as we find out from the french, one of their war fighting
>> sure. >> steve: geraldo rivera. >> brian: enough said. >> steve: thank you for joining us. we'll see you back here tomorrow, sat time, same channel. upstairs to "america's newsroom." there is a fox news alert on word just in. the president will meet with his national security team today to review his efforts in libya. we are getting word of new air strikes. look at the damage they have done in tripoli. allied countries trying to defend innocent civilians and enforce the no-fly zone. this was the scene in benghazi, the second largest city in libya. that's rebel-controlled territory. many waving the flag in the pre-qaddafi era. where is that operation today? one of the many questions for us. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to heather. >> qaddafi supporters remain defiant. the foreign minister denying there are any military operations in misrata. bill: that's where they say snipers are shooting civilians. here is the qaddafi version. >> the situation in misrata is confined to a number of pockets of violence and snipers scattered in different areas of misrata. life is back to normal in m
're not that much closer to a deal. >> gregg: to be fair, republicans are using some tricky math. they claim the total of proposed spending cuts is $102 billion but actually based on this year's budget, it's really $61 billion. both sides are guilty of mathematical deception but there will be a vote to us, harry reid announced it on both the proposals but they are not going to pass, are they? >> it looks like both will fail. i think that is what has to happen so the senate leaders can get their members to the table, they can say look, we have to negotiate. so there has to be a compromise. i think they actually have to go through those motions to convince members, hey, a deal has to happen. >> which brings plea to my next question. in the senate with new numbers, they do have enough votes to block any attempt to change the house bill. doesn't that mean that in reality the only way to fund the government is through house republicans? >> well, i don't know about that. i think everybody has a role to play here. democrats control the senate. they don't have 60 votes but they are in charge and pre
